Richard Smethurst and Paul Wright have become managers, while Anna Godwin has been promoted to assistant manager. All three began their careers at HURST as graduate trainees.

"These promotions are fully-deserved and follow a record year of growth for our team"
Mike Jackson

Partner Mike Jackson, who heads the team, said:We are delighted to announce these promotions, which are fully-deserved and follow a record year of growth for our business services team.

“It’s especially gratifying to be able to reward talented young professionals in this way as we continue our policy of promoting from within to fill senior posts.

“John has led on a transformational project in the department enabling us to enhance our audit process, and Richard, Paul and Anna have all stepped up during an exciting period of rapid growth.

“We are continuing to actively recruit across all levels and departments, including a strong focus on graduate and apprentice entry-level posts.

HURST’s business services division saw double-digit growth in the firm’s latest financial year, during which it won over 30 new clients, including Delamere Dairies, Chandos Civil Engineering, e-foods and Travel World International.
